Actually quickly looking at what they are offering they aren't all that
price competitive when looking at hosting a 'real world' site of the sort
most people I know are designing.

Bandwidth - nope I'm not attempting to match 3TB a month - I host some
fairly bandwidth intensive customers and none of them get anywhere near a
fraction of that.
I can't actually see many sites other than 'top-fifty' type sites that are
ever likely to get anywhere near that bandwidth, and if you were using that
much you would be dealing directly with a tier one backbone provider! :-)

What I offer is sensibly priced professional hosting backed up by decent
experienced support from both myself and Waverider Internet aimed at VARs /
designers who don't want a faceless 'support agent' six time zones away!
